The menu launched at the end of October 2019 and will remain a feature on the menu until early 2020. The dishes in the featured collaboration can be selected individually or as part of the Special Set menu for £23 for 3 courses. This will include Nasu Dengaku (Fried aubergine with sweet white miso glaze, topped with walnuts and microcresses), Sapporo Butter Corn Miso Ramen (Rich red miso broth topped with butter, corn, pork mince and cabbage.
